And because of this, it weakens the root of the movement.”By Leon SuseranSamuel Theophilus Fraser popularly called ‘Sam T’ of Vryman’s Erven, New Amsterdam, is an accomplishedSamuel Frasertrade unionist. His name would most certainly ring a bell in the mining sector, bauxite to be more specific. He is proud of his achievements and was careful to point out that he was one of the only trade unionists in the country that represented workers’ rights and interests while being employed in the company at the same time.But before he entered trade unionism, Fraser was a dedicated young policeman- -a traffic rank at that. He spent a lot of time on his Honda motorcycle on the road ensuring there was law and order on our roadways. He was stationed for quite some time at Leonora on the West Coast of Demerara and later at Adventure on the Corentyne.Born at Weldaad on the West Coast of Berbice, on August 29, 1949. He was popularly known in his village as ‘Bryan’,Cheap Jerseys, “and it was 14 of us kids…4 died and 10 were left”. His mother, Rose, was a huckster and his father, Daniel, a farmer. He automatically became the eldest in the home after an older sister left to live with her grandmother. This gave additional responsibilities to young Samuel, who recounted “I used to take care of the little ones when my mom and dad left home for the day—either she gone to town to sell or my father gone to the farm”.EARLY LIFESamuel attended Belladrum Primary School,NFL Jerseys Authentic China, which was at the time known as St Alban’s Primary, but had to leave school at the tender age of 13 to assist financially in the home. He did pass Fourth Standard and “I went to Fifth Standard…but I did not spend too long in Form One because I had to remain at home with the smaller ones”.He spent some time in the home, “when both my mom and dad used to go away for the week to cut rice in the Abary Creek and so, and they would come down on weekends to be at home with the kids, to wash their clothes, cook for them, but we would have neighbours and so—and my grandmother who lived in front—would overlook us”.Traffic rank Fraser at the Leonora Police Station in 1971, preparing to go out on road duties on his Honda 250 motorcycle.After crop season in 1964, his uncle who was a diamond-seeker acquired some diamonds, “bush men called it a big shout” and “he had a lot of money so he purchased a store – a cake shop in those days”.Having only one child,China Jersyes Cheap, Samuel’s uncle asked that he be around to assist in the store, “so I was there in the shop and they purchased another one (shop) and I ran it”.“I became like a son to him and I can remember the first bank account I acquired was by him. He took me to Royal Bank (of Canada) in Georgetown and he opened an account for me with $100—which was a lot of money then,” he recalled.His uncle then purchased a car, and at age 17, Samuel applied for his hire car licence. “I obtained a licence to drive a private car.” These were all opportunities, according to Fraser, to make him more marketable.During this period of running the shop, he met his wife, Urna Miller. She used to come and purchase stuff from the shop. She was 12 and he was just 14, “and we used to play and one day the guys at the shop (his friends) told me that she was a decent girl and that girl is one who can make you a wife… talk to her seriously”. Fraser noted that the relationship started to develop into a serious “boyfriend/girlfriend relationship”.He joined the Police Force on April 1, 1969, as was later posted at the Traffic Department in Leonora, West Coast Demerara. He served there for some time.“Things happened quickly that year. My mother went and asked home for the girl…and then I wrote to her (Urna) and I was accepted and the very year, 1969, my mom encouraged us to engage, because she said always marry a girl you know about—somebody from within your area.” They got married on December 2, 1970. Their union produced five children – Stacey, Tracey, Royden,Cheap China Jerseys, Rhonda and Ronnette. He did have a daughter, VIssil, prior to his marriage.The couple has been together for 42 years now.EDUCATION DRIVE AND BAUXITE INDUSTRYAdventure commenced for young Sam at 18 years, when his uncle passed away and he was identified to visit the Kurupung Mountains in the interior to the diamond field to attend to his (uncle’s) gold and diamond claims.In those days, due to limited means of transportation, this trip took him one week by water and land through Barti
